Himeji Castle

was Just open to the public on March 27th 2015 after the repair since 2009.  I visited the Castle at 9 AM on March 31st. Many tourists enjoyed the castle tour and cherry blossom viewing.  When I got out of the castle, the admission was resticted and tourist would wait one-hour at 11 AM.
when you visit Himeji Castle, pease visit earlier in the morning.

Please refer to Himeji Castle and Engyoji Temple or the set of "the Last Samurai."
